The Communists Among Us


Enemy Within


Soviet Union and Russian Victory banner

OK, watch out! Incoming! I’m going to let them have it, full bore. Having just spent a month in the former Soviet Union, specifically Russia and Ukraine, I’m going to say some things that many Americans won’t want to hear. But these things need to be said.

As the old saying goes, truth is the best medicine.

America is suffering because she has lost her love of freedom, internally, and the torch for freedom internationally. America will never be great again until we regain this focus, this passion, this love of freedom, and the will to spread it, support it, nurture it overseas. America will only regain her power, when this torch is recovered.

The Soviet model

In the Soviet Union, there were many evils. The main crime, which bred all others, was to extinguish the inner soul of a person, to make him or her just like everyone else, to make him or her a slave to Big Brother, to kill the human spirit. The human suffering continues. In fact, many of these old evils are returning in various forms. Many of the people are zombies, glued to the television and believing what they are told to believe. There is very little independent thinking. Those who want to be free, for the most part, have left.

At the end of the day, communism was nothing but a way to control others. While studying the Russian language in college, I fondly remember my instructor telling a story of a bunch of Soviet peasants standing by the side of the road as a limo sped by, carrying a government official dressed in an expensive suit, while the peasants struggled to survive. “At least he is enjoying communism,” they laughed out loud. This reminds me of our limousine liberals today, preaching a pseudoscience, climate-change agenda, while riding in their large SUVs and flying around the world in their carbon-belching private jets.

The liberal agenda is about control. It is about making others do as they say, not as they do. It is wrong. It is communism. It is Marxism. A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

I have a friend who grew up in communist Vietnam, before escaping as a young adult. His quote to me was, “I grew up under communists. I know how they think. I can smell a communist. Barack Obama is a communist.”

Dinesh D’Souza was right. Mr. Obama does not love America. The agenda of his administration — whether it be the Iran nuclear deal, removing troops from the Middle East, pretending to be fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — is something altogether different. It is about reducing American power. It is quite obvious Mr. Obama is a communist at heart, and a Muslim. His agenda fits quite nicely with the Islamist agenda worldwide. He is trying to change America alright. Why else would he go to a church where they chant, “God damn America?” Why else would he fill his administration with Muslims? Why else would he stand by as thousands of Christians are butchered around the world and not say a word?

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

Islam is a movement

Recently, the president said during a speech at the United Nations, “I lead the most powerful military the world has ever known.” I was embarrassed to hear that. It is all about Barack. It’s not about freedom anymore. Mr. Obama’s speech was not elegant. His speech was tasteless and rabid narcissism.

President George W. Bush, for all his faults, was a principled man. You knew where he stood. The world knew where he stood. The world knew where America stood. We stood for freedom. Our veterans, throughout the last 250 years, fought for freedom. They didn’t fight for a way of life where others are controlled.

Now the communists, the Marxists, are here among us. They are attempting to change America, our way of life. They abhor it. Yes, I am talking, sadly to say, about the Democratic Party and all it represents. They no longer represent the America I knew. They see a different future, one controlled by an elite, one which will enjoy communism while the rest of us abide by their politically correct dictates.

Islam is not a religion. It is a political movement. It is about controlling others. It preaches death. It preaches control of others. Ben Carson was spot on. The teachings of Islam are against the principles of our Constitution and our way of life. That is not a racist statement, no matter what the liberals say. It is simply the truth. But communists abhor the truth, so they will attempt to discredit the truth teller. It’s an old Soviet tactic and it is working well in America today.

Houston, we have a Muslim problem. Open your eyes. They are killing us. They are attempting to change our Western way of life, our laws, our culture. This struggle against this political movement, Islam, is nothing new. Thomas Jefferson fought against it in the conflict against the Barbary Pirates. The struggle against this attempted domination is thousands of years old. I’m not a racist. I could care less the color of your skin. I care about the content of your character. I try and use a simple test: Is this person trying to control others; or is he supporting freedom of the individual? That is how you spot a communist, a Marxist, a cultural Marxist.

Communism and other “isms” are evil, slippery, lying, sneaky, cheating, evil. Speaking with a Ukrainian friend recently, he told me a story. On the day that the Russian military made it clear who was now in control in Crimea, the Ukrainian military units were gathered to give them a choice. They could sign allegiance to the Russian military in Crimea and keep their jobs, or they could return to Ukraine and leave everything. Then they read a list of soldiers to stand. Several Ukrainian men stood up when their names were called. These men were all recognized by the Ukrainian military as their close friends, brothers in arms. But now the new Russian leaders called them by different names, their real names. You see, they had been spies and were there all along. The Crimean invasion had been planned long before. “These men are your new commanders,” the Russians said.

Mining our youth

Our education system has been corrupted. Our universities are brimming with Marxists who fill our children’s heads with communist mush. And our children are buying it. The goal: Change America.

We have to change this system, as Scott Walker has attempted to do. This thing called tenure has to be abolished. There has to be accountability for what they are teaching our kids. Political correctness is simply a vehicle to control others — and it is working.

You have to re-educate your college students. You have to teach your son to be a man. Teach your daughters to stand up for the truth, to not be worried about offending others. Teach your children to follow their internal compass, to be free. Open their eyes to what is being taught in our “hallowed” universities. Our children today don’t even know what freedom is. They are zombies to Big Brother. Tell them there will be hell to pay if they bring home a Leftist for dinner.

I’m sure I will be called a McCarthyite. But I don’t care. Call me what you want. What I really am is a truth teller. The emperor has no clothes. It needs to be said. Many of our zombies need to have their eyes opened.

And, one more thing. One of the hallmarks of the Soviet way of life was corruption. Have you noticed how it has mushroomed under the Obama administration? The latest being the Secret Service leaking federally protected information about a congressman to settle a grudge? The VA, EPA, Secret Service, IRS, they are all corrupt. That is because the example comes from the top. It’s the communist way.

Help me, my fellow Americans, before it’s too late. Let’s stop this change and elect a leader who will stand up for freedom in 2016. I want my country back.
